The craziest buildings in the world.
Modern architecture is truly fantastic and clearly seeks to bring people closer to the stars.
Below are the buildings under construction — a sign that the future is near, and it will be grandiose. After all, the scale of the towering construction projects is impressive!
- Cobra towers.
Towers in the form of two intertwined cobras are planned to appear in Kuwait. Construction was planned to start in 2008, but due to the financial crisis, the project was “frozen”. One of the most discussed issues of the project is how the elevator will be built, because due to the spiral structure, the usual elevator can not be installed here. For the operation of the elevator, experts suggested using a technology that will work on compressed air on the principle of a pneumatic pipe.
- The Royal Tower.
The Royal Tower, which exceeds the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, is being built in Saudi Arabia and will be the first building on the planet whose height is close to a kilometer. It will house luxury condos, office space, an observatory, the Four Seasons Hotel and the world’s tallest terrace. The construction of the skyscraper officially began last year, the construction should be completed in 2019.
- Shanghai Tower.
Construction of the 121-story Shanghai Tower in China, which began in 1993, was completed earlier this year, and finishing work is now underway. However, millions of people have already watched the view from above, thanks to the dizzying images taken by two Russian daredevils who illegally climbed to the top last year.
- Dubai Perl.
Between designing the largest shopping mall and the tallest building in the world, someone decided that Dubai should have a luxury building that looked like an ordinary apartment building. The planned “inner city” will have 4 towers connected by a sky bridge and a premium theater with 1,800 seats.
- Agora Garden.
Already in 2016, the construction of the building will be completed, which will be a compromise between the creations of mother nature and man. The twisty 20-story structure will be green in every sense: balconies on each floor will support the gardens, and there will also be state-of-the-art life support systems, including solar panels and rainwater recycling.
- World One.
The 117-story skyscraper will be the tallest residential building on the planet and undoubtedly the tallest building in Mumbai. India’s richest people will live in 300 luxury four-bedroom apartments. The design of the rooms was designed by the studio of Giorgio Armani .
- King Abdullah Oil Research and Development Center (KARSARC)
The closest of all the structures on this list to earth, but no less mind-blowing, KARSARC in Saudi Arabia looks more like the lair of a James Bond villain than a multinational hub. The futuristic design is the brainchild of the iconic architect Zaha Hadid, who took as a basis the interweaving of hexagonal cells.
- Zhongnan Center in Suzhou.
Only recently, China has begun construction of a 730-meter center, and it still has a long, very long way to go. But, if the $ 4.5 billion pointed project is completed on schedule in 2020, it will be the tallest building in China and the third-tallest building in the world.
- Lotte World Tower.
Well above all other buildings in Seoul, the 556-meter skyscraper will soar above the horizon when it is completed in 2016. The building will house shops, offices, apartments, hotels and an observation deck.
- Davang Mountain Resort»
The Chinese mountain resort “Davang” will be waiting for you from 2016. Stretching for 170 meters in length, the resort will include an “ice world of entertainment”, an indoor ski complex, a water park and hanging gardens.
- Seongjang Hotel»
Apparently, this hotel, nestled among rocks and lakes — is next on the list of places to stay in China. Like the mountain resort “Davang”, “Sonjang” will be built directly on the walls of the quarry, and a waterfall will flow down its facade. Well, if you can’t enjoy the view from one of the upper floors, go to the lower ones — they will be under water.
